Crewmember's Grandaughter Visits



Karen Cline of Washington state, recently visited USS Razorback. Her grandfather was Torpedoman First Class Charles "Pops" Gibson aboard Razorback when she was commissioned in 1944.


According to his granddaughter, Petty Officer Gibson (in the circle), was called "Pops" because he was the oldest enlisted man on Razorback.

Petty Officer Gibson was from Washington State, where his widow, Louise, as well as his daughter Judy , granddaughter Karen, and grandson KC still live. A son, C. Martin resides in California. Two other grandsons, Chip and Andrew, live in Colorado and California respectively.

It's wonderful that Razorback crewmembers and their families continue to contribute their personal stories. They really make our museum come alive.

Here is a correction from Judy Cline.
Mr. Howard,

Just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for contacting others who called my mother..Edythe Gibson. She was thrilled to talk to all of you, and it really made her week. When you are nearly 90, not much does that....but you all really filled her heart with joy. The last gentleman who called her...a Mr. Moon, told her many things about my father from his memories of him on the Sub. She said... "it was just like talking to Dad...and I cried"

What a great service you all are doing to keep the memories alive of so many who have served this great Nation on the Razorback.

May God Bless and Keep you all,

Judy Cline,
Daughter of Charles M."Pops" Gibson.
